Assessment & Forensic Services
Since 1991, CareLink has been providing services for adults with
disabilities who do not fit into existing forensic or behavioral health care
services. CareLink’s specialized services help ensure that people with
problem sexual behavior or forensic involvement get effective treatment for
improved community functioning.

CareLink currently provides services to residents of Delaware, Chester, Montgomery, and Philadelphia Counties in Pennsylvania, and Camden County, New Jersey, who come from a variety of admission settings, including independent living environments, homes with family, supported housing, other community service providers, state hospitals, correctional facilities, or homeless shelters. Available services vary by county and individual CareLink site.
